If you’re a bit of an adrenaline junkie, then Darwin has some great options for you. We discover a range of adventure activities all located in Darwin city that can be done in one day!
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day
Start with a hearty breakfast at the Lime Café to prepare you for your day of adventure. Situated at the Darwin Waterfront precinct and opening bright and early from 6.30am 7 days a week, this is a great place to fill your belly before you fill your soul with adventure.
Big Splash at the Darwin Waterfront
Once your breakfast has settled, take a walk around the Darwin Waterfront, do a spot of shopping at one of the boutique retailers, or get your bathers on and take a dip in the salt water recreation lagoon, protected from the ocean with a sea wall and mesh screens to keep out the marine stingers.
Once you’ve whet your adrenaline appetite, head over to Big Buoy – Darwin’s very own floating water park! This water-bound bouncy castle will test your upper body strength and provide entertainment for the whole family (from 6 years up). And don’t worry – if you fall off you will land in the protected water.
Surf’s up at the Darwin Wave Lagoon
With your heart pumping, head over to the Wave Lagoon – Darwin’s very own man-made wave pool. Chill out on a sun lounge with an ice-cream from the kiosk or surf the waves on one of the boogie boards, water tubes or pool noodles on offer at the water’s edge.
